This is a stranded thread that is thicker than DMC/Anchor. Has 5 strands for some reason. It is a bit like using multiply strands of a fine perle. I think this is a thread I will start to collect.
I am also using a canvas that I purchased in a bundle and really don't care for. In the future it may get used for a project with my girls.
Going to Fiona's self defense class now and the little one (Amanda) has asked if she can bring her needlepoint with us to do. Needlework is catching in this household.
